I thank all of you, incredibly, for your happy birthday wishes. Your cyberspace greetings mean so much to me, you just don't know. In terms of actual physical gifts, I received:

wine glasses, including the new trendy "stemless" wine glasses
a new robe (from mom)
a lovely scarf that my sister bought me in Amsterdam
a CD: Live at Leeds, by the Who from my daughter (Hannah and I are major Who fans and I had the album back in the day)
from my husband: "The Erotic Writer's Market Guide." Hmmm, not sure what to make of that since he has not read my story (but has let me read it to him).

Anyway, thanks guys for a very very happy birthday it is appreciated....

hugs hugs and more,

Leslie

Unfortunately, Katie, no...

Barb and I wrote the first part of the motel scene together one night in a chat. However, no one thought to hit save so it was lost in the ether when it was over...

... and perhaps that's for the best.  You know, what happens in chat stays in chat, or something like that?  ;)

A couple a days late, a couple a dollars short. ..

Hope you're having a lovely extended weekend/birthday blowout, Sweetheart!

Happy Birthday (belated) Leslie!

Your writing exudes the sensitivity of a fellow Cancer sister (too bad we don't all have a fraction of your talent).

Hope your day and year is the best!

I asked Leslie what she wanted for her birthday this year...

and this is what she wanted.

Happy birthday my dear.

Ha ha ha, thank you Lou!

My birthday thread from LAST YEAR...resurrected for 2007. What a treat, to see all those greetings and realize I am still here at Bettermost with all my Bettermost friends, one year later...

And what a great year it has been. Finishing one book length story and then writing another; meeting Brokies in London, Boston, and Europe; seeing BBM the stage play in Holland; making lots of new Bettermost friends and strengthening friendships with those I have known...

All in all, I am blessed.
